Common Questions and Answers about Symptoms of kidney infection from uti


Avatar f tn I began experiencing symptoms of a UTI which were very mild compared to symptoms I had experiences with previous UTIs. This made me doubt the presence of the UTI and I put off going to the doctor. A few days later I began vomiting and having severe nausea, but the UTI symptoms were kind of going away. After about a 24 hour period, the vomiting subsided but the severe nausea stayed and the UTI symptoms came back.
Avatar f tn Will they be able to tell if its a kidney infection instead of a uti by a urinalysis and cultures or should I calm them back in the morning? The nurse said it'll take up to 48 he's for the results.
Avatar m tn Hello everyone, I sympathise with you all. I have suffered with cystitis for many years and also recently have been experiencing symptoms after the infection has been treated with antibiotics. The symptoms are a raw burning pain after urination but not during,aching afterwards and feeling very tired and low. I use home test dipsticks and these show whiteblood cells only which the doctor says is not an infection so I presume this is inflammation left from the infection.
Avatar f tn Definitely get it checked with the blood. That can be a side effect of a uti but also of kidney infection. Drink loads of water and cranberry juice too even if u dont like it. Cranberry can help keep it away once ur all healed too.
Avatar m tn Hi there, In urinary tract infection backache is very common. Bladder infection, pyelonephritis are other causes of lower back ache. You may take a muscle relaxant for pain relief. An ultrasound scan may be helpful in detecting if there is any kidney stone or anatomic /structural problem with the kidneys. Other causes of backache are injury or overuse of muscles, ligaments, and joints. It is suggested to get evaluated by your attending doctor.
Avatar f tn UTI's are common in pregnancy because of all the pressure that goes on down there. They could lead to a bladder or kidney infection if untreated for too long. Symptoms are burning while urinating & never feeling like you've completely emptied your bladder. If you're having kidney pain, it could be the infection or a stone. I had one in my 12th wk & it felt like someone had it in a vice, twisting it in opposite directions.
Avatar m tn 1-) ct scan of urinary tract (1.5 months ago): everything was normal, except 5 mm stone in the left kidney. the radiologist had an impression of a little bladder wall thickening but was not sure if this is due to an incompletely filled bladder (i went to toilet before ct scan) or due to an organic reason. He was suggesting cystoscopy to be done. 2-) cystoscopy (1.5 months ago): normal 3-) urine cytology (1.5 months ago): negative 4-) MRI of back (1.
168077 tn?1200231377 A few years ago I went to the doctor with what I though was a UTI but when they checked my urine there was no sign of an infection so they gave me medicine and told me if it happened again that I may have to see a urologist. Well that was the 2nd time I had went in and needless to say I haven't been back even though it has happened a few more times. But now this morning my left side is aching and I am wondering if I could have a kidney infection?

Avatar n tn Hello, My wife is in her 16th week, and everything seems to be going well. She currently is taking Macrodantin for a UTI. Here's the problem, she's showing signs of a Kidney infection, which according to everything I have seen increases the chances of low birth weight, and since low birth weight is associated with many many other potential issues, I'm obviously concerned.
Avatar n tn On Friday I was having sharp intermittent aching pain in my right back where my kidney was located. My back in that area was tender to the touch. That evening I went to an urgent care facility and gave a urine sample. The doctor said the sample was too diluted and asked me to bring another sample in the next morning. Saturday morning (at home) I urinated into a cup that was given to me and then three hours later took the sample to the facility.
Avatar f tn I was just on a 14 day course of Amoxicillin 750mg a day, for a sinus infection and was fine as far as any urine problems ... This morning i wake with the symptoms of a UTI and i have only been off the antibiotic for ONE day ... Is this a totally separate problem, and do i have to go back on the antibiotic? Please help!
Avatar n tn If you have a urinary problem, you must drink plenty of water. Whether you have a kidney infection or not, it is recommended that 2-3 litres of water a day is consumed and more if you sweat or workout. If you find that the urine is burning or stinging when you pee, you can drink a glassful of water with 1 teaspoonful of Bicarbonate of Soda. This will help to neutralise the acidity in the urine that is causing the discomfort. Let me know how you get on. Best wishes.

Avatar f tn Last week I was prescribed Bactrim DS for what my doctor said was a UTI but by symptoms seem way more like Kidney infection. It worked for the first 3 days, symptoms were gone within an hour of taking my first pill but then Friday I missed a dose (two pills) and then I started to have symptoms again, I took the pills and they did nothing.. is it possible that missing those two pills could have made the bacteria resistant to antibiotics?

1604722 tn?1297807771 Hello, The various types of UTI are urethritis (infection or inflammation of the urethra), cystitis (an infection of the bladder and is the most common form of UTI), ureteritis (infection of a ureter) or pyelonephritis(infection of the kidney). This can happen with infection from above, or if reflux into the ureters is so bad that infected urine refluxes all the way to the kidney. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn Just wondering if anyone if anone on the board has had a kidney infection, kidney stone, bladder, or urinary tract infection while pregnant. I have had around 10 stones and I am 29 years old. All of my stones were calcium so I am thinking that maybe the prenatal vitamin is stirring something up. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with a UTI after an episode of heavy blood in urine. After 10 days of an antibiotic (ciprofloxacin) I felt better but the bleeding started again. Am now back on 10 more days of same antibiotic but this time am having lower pelvic pain amd discomfort. Could this be something other than a UTI? Urine culture showed a bacterial infection. Is it common for this to take 1 or 2 courses of antibiotics to clear up?
